Unreal Engine 3 Samaritan Tech Demo

Epic Games unveiled the real-time demo of their Unreal Engine 3 at the 2011 Game Developers Conference and it's spectacular. The demo is called The Samaritan and features a guy that fights crooked cops and turns to a cool rocky character. I'm guessing thats what the plot is at least. They say it's not a game, but it would be an awesome game to play.

The updated engine "adds tesselation and displacement, geometry shaders, multisampled textures, shader model 5 support, and high-end features like subsurface light scattering, Bokeh depth-of-field effects, and significant improvements to reflections and shadows." That is programmer talk for #$cking awesome looking games in the future.

I can't wait to play games that look this awesome. I doubt current gaming consoles can push this engine to it's highest settings, even PC's. PS3 will be the best bet for current consoles, but Microsoft currently announced they have hired people to work on the next generation of Xbox. So, here is to the future.

Here is the tech demo and make sure to put it in higher quality to see it in full effect.
